Ranging from 90 to 120 feet tall, the four electrically-powered Waterfalls are strategically placed along the East River at Governors Island, Manhattan's Pier 35, the Brooklyn Bridge and between Brooklyn's Piers 4 and 5. The package is available at Hilton New York, Waldorf Astoria and Millenium Hilton, and it includes spacious accommodations for two and tickets for a one-hour cruise with audio narration. The boat tour offers panoramic views of the man-made Waterfalls, created by renowned artist Olafur Eliasson and commissioned by the Public Art Fund. The Waterfalls exhibit operates seven days a week from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM and is lit after sunset. All four New York City Waterfalls are visible from the South Street Seaport so travelers can view the works of art from land as well.
